    CountryLady's Note:

    You've tried the rest - now try the best!! I've been making this ground beef/tomato based sauce for years - it freezes well & can be used for lasagna & other pasta dishes. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. Since I don't measure the spices, I've estimated in order to share the recipe - but feel free to alter according to your own tastes. A little more red wine can't hurt either!!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in large Dutch oven or heavy pot; add onion and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add garlic, ground beef& salt and cook over medium heat, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no pink remains.
    3. 3
      Don't drain off fat as this helps the sauce to"cling" to the pasta.
    4. 4
      Add tomatoes, tomato sauce& tomato paste; mix well, breaking up tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
    5. 5
      Use the red wine to rinse the tomato cans& remove any product left behind- then add to the Dutch oven.
    6. 6
      Add spices& mix well; bring the mixture to a boil, then lower heat& simmer for AT LEAST 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
    7. 7
      If you find that the sauce is getting too thick for your taste, add a little water.
    8. 8
      Remove bay leaves, ladle over your favourite type of spaghetti& sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

      I guess I am used to spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage. I thought it tasted better with elbow macaroni topped with cheddar cheese than with spaghetti noodles. I would try it again with Italian sausage.

      This was fabulous!! Served it with a side salad and Texas Toast. I cooked mine in the crockpot for 6 hours on low. Thanks for posting!

      Yummy! Followed this exactly, and the only thing I added was some mushrooms, 'cause I eat them with most everything. I did have to add water a couple of times, and I've now got a really good batch of spaghetti sauce to enjoy. Thanks!
